The first weekend of Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi’s placement season has witnessed over 200 job offers including 15 international.
Among the international offers, maximum nine offers are made by the South Korea’s company Samsung. Other than that, students at the institute have also received offers from the companies in Singapore, US and South Korea.
According to a release, among the national recruiters, a maximum number of 21 offers came from Samsung Research India (Bangalore). American Express, Goldman Sachs, ITC and Microsoft made over 10 offers each. Intern hiring processes in various companies considered undergraduate students only.
“Intern hirings have started on a very optimistic note this year. We hope that this trend continues for the rest of the season and it is an indication of the coming placement season,” IIT Delhi Professor-in-Charge of Placement I N Kar said.
Placement officer at the Training and Placement Cell of IIT Delhi Anishya Madan maintains that this year the students had multiple high value intern offers – giving students ample choice. “The robust start of this process, we hope, is an indication of a healthy placement season as well. Today, many companies also prefer this route as a feeder to final placement as it gives them a chance to evaluate students before offering a PPO and the students also get to evaluate the company culture and work being done to see if it fits their personal career plans.”
